I came across this project from a comment left in my recent post Brags! What DIY Project Are You Most Proud Of? It came from Julia from the blog Chris Loves Julia.

Come take a look inside a home and workspace built by heart and hand.
I will never grow out of Professor Layton games. In fact, I even thought about buying a Nintendo 3DS just so I could play the newest game in the series, Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask. Instead, I thought I'd dream up a quiet, grown-up gaming room inspired by this puzzling game.
